Even though the water that enters your home from the municipal system goes through a treatment plant, it can still pick up contamination from groundwater in the pipes before it reaches your home. We recommend that most homes have water testing to see if there are harmful pollutants in their water, and then install the appropriate water treatment system to counteract any of the problems discovered from the testing. You can turn to The Trusted Plumber to arrange for testing and the installation of a variety of water treatment systems in Peoria, AZ.
One of the treatment systems that we install is the reverse osmosis system. These devices are among the most effective filtration systems available today: they work by creating two areas of water pressure inside them, and using the pressure difference to force the water containing contaminants through a semi-permeable membrane that will filter out very tiny pollutants.
When should you consider reverse osmosis filtration? The easiest way to answer that question is to work with a professional who will test your water and tell you if reverse osmosis is the best method to eliminate the contamination affecting your water supply. Reverse osmosis filters are effective at blocking chemical pollutants, such as radon, chromium, and fluoride, all of which will usually get through standard charcoal filters. These filters will also remove arsenic and chlorine, providing you with the cleanest water possible.
Another reason to install a reverse osmosis filter is to counteract excess sodium ions that water softeners can create. If you have added a water softener to protect your plumbing, but have found that the water has become too salty, a reverse osmosis filter will help to counteract the problem.
In general, reverse osmosis systems provide a higher level of contaminant filtration than any other kind of filter. This doesn’t automatically mean that reverse osmosis is your top choice. In some cases, you may only need a few pollutants removed, and a less powerful filter is the more cost-effective option. Let your plumber and water treatment system professionals give you the guidance necessary to find a filter that will do the job necessary and stay within your budget plans.
